You can use this to record sound if you don't have a microphone.
You point a 57 at a sound source, adjust the gain on your preamp, and what you record sounds vaguely like the sound you recorded. One time me and a buddy drowned a 57 in a toilet, flushed for the heck of it, then plugged her in and used her and she sounded exactly the same. No worse off.... but no better either! Indestructible, cheap, I used to own like 8 of these but now I think I just have my vintage 60s one.
The industry standard.
This microphone is by no mistake the industry standard for recording guitar (and a lot of other instruments). We grew up listening to guitars recorded with it, and, as ar as microphones go, this one is really really easy to set up and get a good sound out of. I have used it for vocals with a pop filter with good results, and for other instruments as well. Highly recommend.
Truly excellent for recording and live use
I used to make do with one of our drummer's spare tom microphones... I didn't realise what I was missing until I got one of these and my life changed! Absolutely love it, perfect for mic'ing up my amps either for stage or studio.
Not my choice for a vocal mic, but for instruments is great
I bought one Shure SM57 before my first big gig with my other band, my Fender Rumble is really louder but the room was really big, so we (me and the guitar player, who has a Marsall CF 112) bought a couples of these mics, we put the mics in a Yamaha EMX head and trough two Peavey's PV115 and we play. I also recorded a lot of acoustic's with this mic and my Yamaha Acoustic. Not my choice for voices, but is a great instrument mic
